SMEs are more than ever being targeted by cybercriminals... Why? Being unsuspecting and often careless, they are often seen as easy prey by hackers. The year 2017 saw an exponential rise in cybercrime and it is becoming more and more sophisticated...
Small and mid-sized businesses are hit by 62 percent of all cyber-attacks, about 4,000 per day. And this number is growing rapidly, as more and more companies use the cloud, mobile devices and store information online. To counteract cybercrime-related threats, managers must more than ever put in place security measures adapted to their needs if they want to ensure continuity in their business. Unfortunately, small businesses often want to cut costs in areas such as security. Consequently, each dollar saved in this way will easily be surpassed in terms of costs and damaged reputation following a cyber attack.
So if you think you’re not at risk because you’re not a bank or a large company like Home Depot or JP Morgan, think twice! Nobody is safe.
Simon Fontaine has used his life experience over the last 15 years in Strategic IT-Business Planning to present entrepreneurs a different approach to security that is better targeted and more strategic.
What is valued by managers is quite subjective and each company has different things that need securing to ensure the continuation of their operations... Most security audits don’t fulfill the sought-after goals and are just “copy-and-paste”. Consequently, companies pay money for results that are not adapted to their needs and thus bypass their main objective which is to secure what is really important.
We carefully read Simon’s chapter and agree that computer security most be considered by all senior managers in order for it to be optimized and in line with our business objectives.
Following the establishment of our master plan as well as the outsourcing to the ARS team less than 5 years ago, we have managed to ensure a secure environment for our systems and data.
We are conscious of the fact that security is everyone’s responsibility. Communicating the issues to all employees is the key to maintaining an efficient environment that is available for our operations.
I find Simon’s chapter to be excellent! It keeps us spellbound throughout. I am sure that it will pique the curiosity of business leaders.
Simon makes us question ourselves to see whether or not our systems really are secure.
I really liked the exercise proposed to the management committee and I intend to do it with Simon’s help to review our level of security.
I really enjoyed reading the chapter and the tool that was proposed.
I took the time to read the chapter that Simon wrote as part of the ‘’Easy Prey’’ project.
It makes us think about having a focus for each company depending on its operations.
Security is different for each one. I agree with the idea that, in this area, each case must be considered individually.
We have moreover undertaken these considerations with the ARS team ».
Inspired by our experience over the last 15 years in Strategic IT-Business Planning, our management tool will help you extract the essential elements to be secured while evaluating their degree of criticality and the associated financial impact. It will become an important frame of reference for your organisation. It will also allow you to conduct a critical evaluation of the maintenance of the security processes in place, to avoid any confusion and to ensure that the person responsible is taking care of it. This table will ensure the success of this process.
